Four Sports Slated
For Varsity Athletes
University of Oregon athletes will trudge through the registration
line today and then immediately start conditioning for four different
sports—baseball, track, golf and tennis.
First regular competition of spring term comes Friday night when
Colonel Bill Hayward, veteran track coach, sends a group of his top
runners into the annual Hill military meet in Portland. The Hill classic
yearly attracts top men from all parts of the United States and Colonel
Bill likes to have his Webfoots make a showing.
Hayward field’s cinder oyal has
been unavailable for practice since
last fall what with laborers giving
it a rebuild job. but the Duck cin
dermen managed to keep in trim
last term by scampering about on
the football practice fields.
Face Lifting
Another sports field to under
go a face lifting is the Howe field
baseball diamond which attracted
the efforts of a flock of workmen
during the last two weeks. The
opening varsity warmup game is
billed for April 2, which gives the
boys less than 10 days of intensive
drill to get in shape.
In the absence of Coach Howard
Hobson, now in the East attending
the national basketball coaches’
convention, the varsity squad will
be directed by Cece Walden, vet
eran catcher, and under supervi
sion of Anse Cornell, athletic di
Koss Cutler, varsity swimming
coach, will have charge of tennis
this spring in place of Paul Wash
ke, who is on a year’s leave of ab
sence. Cutler plans to start net drill

times this spring he has equaled
the indoor record in practice.
